Date posted: Jul 06, 2015       Posted by: Kathy Tan


Summer is the perfect time of the year to wind up and soul search. To help you do those, we provide you list of books that will help you and will make you remap your soul and lay down your plans.

Whether you’re a student or a regular person working in a company, these books will inspire you to do better with life!

  1. Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck?: And Other Provocations – Seth Godin

This book is a masterpiece, and unlike most self-improvement books, this one targets an infinite array of areas in which you can, and ultimately must, improve. With its ruthless honesty and genuine inspiration, Godin makes you ponder the difficult questions you wouldn’t ever dare to ask yourself. The result is a completely new perspective of the world- a fresher, more vibrant perspective, packed with new and bold possibilities.

  1. The ONE Thing – Gary Keller, Jay Papasan

Think of the ONE thing you ultimately want to do with your life, career, or business over the long-run. Once you’ve got that in your mind, think about how many dominoes you need to line up—and then knock down—in order to achieve it. Simple right? Actually, yeah. It is. But just because it’s simple doesn’t make it easy. That’s why “The ONE Thing” is such a powerful book. According to the authors, the key to success is figuring out your ONE most important goal — in your business, career, health, relationships, and every other area of life that matters to you — and knocking down one domino at a time until you’ve achieved that ONE goal.

  1. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen Covey

The power of this book comes from the timeless principles (or habits) it’s based off. Each habit laid out in this book is designed to act as individual prescriptions for effectiveness in every area of life, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

  1. Quiet: the Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking – Susan Cain

Quiet explores the world of introverts (a full third of all people) detailing many praiseworthy characteristics that come along with introversion, as well as what the world would miss without introverts. A history of the rise of the extroverted ideal as well as great stories about introverted success change how readers will view the introvert in themselves, as well as other introverts, forever.

  1. Humans of New York – Brandon Stanton

Photographer and amateur anthropologist Brandon Stanton brings the best of his long-running blog of the same name to this brightly-colored volume. Though Stanton’s musings on his photos and quotes from his subjects are surely inspiring, we can’t help but take to the lively, diverse expressions of style he captures in these photos. It’s NYC people-watching at its best.
